's what's going on right now. the government of iraq wants its own vice president dead. well, now he is on the run. and in syria they called them barrel bombs. they are filled with nails, gasoline, and tnt. one just fell on a kindergartener. also, we begin in europe where a little while ago a girl just woke up after witnessing the unspeakable. it is a murder mystery that stretches from france to britain. a family was found dead in a car in the french alps. the body 6 a cyclist was also discovered meesh. all the victims were shot in the head. twice. but two little girls survived. one was beaten and shot. the other one hid under her dead mother's legs for hours. we are joined from england outside the family's home, and antika, this has a lot of people talking. i mean, it's unbelievable when you think about what took place, what happened with this family. do investigators have any idea of a motive? >> not at this point, and that's the big question. what was the motive? why did this happen? this is why british police are now inside the family home behind me there looking for any clues, a

and protesters. i am wolf blitzer in for piers morgan. demonstrations across the region from iran and iraq to gaza, to yemen, to libya and morocco, a wave of anti-american anger that has cost the lives of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans, two of them former u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s. meanwhile, president obama spoke out about all of this on the campaign trail today. >>> people around the world, i want people to hear me, to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> secretary of state, hillary clinton, tonight paid tribute to the two security personnel killed alongside ambassador chris stevens. tyrone wood and glen dougherty. she said, this violence should shock people of all faiths and traditions. people of conscience and good will every we are must stand together against violence, hate and division. we have two reporters covering this story for us. arwa damon is in tripoli. ben wedeman is i
today noticed since that speech, more than 900 soldiers have died in iraq. >> so that was this date in the campaign in 2004. this date in the campaign in 2008, even though we were right in the middle of the meltdown of the financial sector, still at the center of the campaign in 2008, at the first debate between john mccain and barack obama, which was this date four years ago, the focus was the war. in fact, both wars. >> do you, senator mccain, much has been said about the lessons of vietnam. what do you see as the lessons of iraq? >> i think the lessons of iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy. thanks to this great general david pa trm pa tray yous, they succeeding and winning in iraq. >> whether we should have gone into the war in the first place. six years ago i stood up and opposed this war. we hadn't finished the job in afghanistan. we hadn't caught bin laden. we hadn't put al qaeda to rest. and as a consequence, i thought that it was going to be a distraction. now, senator mccain and president bush had a very different judgment. >> so that was this date,
events. about ten years ago, perhaps, iran was under direct threat. those who have occupied iraq and afghanistan were threatening iran on a daily basis. i do not believe that we are under any special conditions now from those sources, but the fact that the world -- historic period in the world is coming to an end, an era during which power has set the first and last word. those holding the keys to power have set the fate of many populations. that era is coming to an end. >> the big catalyst for protests at the moment in the middle east was the video that was released which mocked the prophet muhammed. as a result, there was an attack as you know on the american embassy in benghazi in libya. the ambassador christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people, we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or not
they were flowing into iraq to martyr themselves trying to kill american troops in iraq, al qaeda documents seized by the u.s. army in iraq showed the little town of derna in libya sent more volunteers to die in iraq in 2006 and 2007 than any other place in the entire arab world. libya, per capita, as a country, sent more fighters to iraq than any other country, but it was specifically derna, that town, that sent the highest number of fighters. the most. full stop. and in 2008 the man who would become our ambassador, christopher stevens, he went to derna to assess the state of militancy and anti-americanism there. and his cable back to washington actually used the bruce willis movie "diehard" as an analysis for understanding how intense the local attitudes were there about jihad. once the uprising against moammar gadhafi was under way, cnn reported this june that al qaeda central, the part that used to be headed by bin laden, al qaeda central dispatched a top operator from the tribal areas in pakistan to go to derna, to go to that part of libya to capitalize on that town's legendary militan
, pakistan and iraq are killed. would it not have been better to have a more precise analysis and find out the true in-depth reason of the events of september 11th, make those findings transparent to the populations and the nations across the world, and then have a response in unison? of course the expense would have been much less. do you know how much has been spent during the afghan and iraq war? >> a considerable amount of money. but let me ask you this, mr. president. if nearly 3,000 iranians had been murdered in the way that americans were on 9/11 in tehran, how would you have reacted to the country that you believed had done that? >> translator: so you're saying that the country of afghanistan was at fault? was responsible? so you're seeing the responsible party as a whole nation? >> i think it is inarguably that al qaeda and osama bin laden's men, who worked for him, were training in afghanistan. so afghanistan was certainly knowingly harboring terrorists who were training to commit atrocities. >> translator: i believe that you can, under no circumstances, justify the condemnation
, but we have made some very clear red lines there. >> people will say this is very reminiscent of iraq. you have a bad guy who is believed to be in the process of either developing or has wmd. we know what happened with iraq, that that intelligence was flawed. can america, can the world, risk another flawed military action if it turns out ahmadinejad is actually telling the truth? >> first of all, it's very different from iraq. i personally never saw any intelligence that was at all persuasive on the nuclear issue. i wanted the inspectors to go in there for a simple reason. when the first gulf war was over, we began an accounting of all of saddam's weapons of mass destruction, which mostly consisted of chemical warheads and chemical and biological agents. in 1998, when he kicked the inspectors out, there were two biological agents and two chemical agents, a substantial quantity unaccounted for. we bombed, the u.s. and uk. after 9/11, i thought it was important for the inspectors to go in, try to find out whether we had destroyed that or not. we later learned when he was deposed that it
as a s.e.a.l. with multiple tours in iraq and afghanistan. after retiring, he worked as a nurse in his wife's dental practice. sean smith was a computer expert, an air force veteran and was with support and service for ten years. he was married with two children. also killed was former navy s.e.a.l. glen doherty from massachusetts. a private security contractor, he was in libya searching for a shoulder launch antiaircraft missiles, a high u.s. government priority after the fall of moammar gadhafi. >> so deeply saddening, it also makes us aware, though, of the kind of role that people like chris and over the years are playing, unsung, but the critical role that they play. >> glen lived his life to the fullest. he was my brother, but if you asked his friends, he was their brother as well. >> i'm sure my son went down fighting. i don't know the ins and outs of it. i haven't been told. but i'm sure he went down fighting. i'm sure he did. i just hope his last moments weren't painful. >> they are now coming home. the transfer of remains, ceremony, scheduled to begin in a few minutes. that at
into another iraq. >> and they've said that that explicitly, about turning libya into another iraq. how did -- so many people are deciding, could you tell me more about those who are very anti nus their sentiment. >> these people did say they do not agree with thisattack. they really felt ashamed by what happened, saying that diplomats here, foreigners here should be protected, but at the same time, they said they reject the presence of any foreign troops or any sort of outside military intervention in libya. they said we've also heard that last year during the revolution, there was unity in the stands of libyans who were fighting the regime of moammar gadhafi. they welcomed the support of nato air strikes, but said they did not want to see any boots on the ground. so at this point, this could be a real controversial issue here in libya. we have to wait and hear, see what the libyan government officials say about this. they have said they're unable to deal with groups. >> and that, nick kristof, let me bring you in here. some people had told her tonight, regular libyans, they don't want ame
recovered a trove of documents in iraq, basically the sort of rosetta stone of al qaeda in iraq. when they looked at these documents and analyzed them, they found that 40% of the foreign fighters coming into iraq were coming from libya, which was an unexpected thing to fi. historically libya has provided quite a lot of suicide attackers to al qaeda, and the group that is sort of deemed to be behind this attack is probably one of these sort of splinter groups from al qaeda central. >> how strong is their presence there in libya, and who leads them, do we know? >> reporter: you know, i mean there's a sort of umbrella group, according to the libyan -- former libyan jihadist, supporters of sharia. i think a lot of this is relatively secretive. this is not obviously an organization that operates in a very overt manner. my guess is that we're talking about a few hundred people at most. it doesn't represent the tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people who were taking up arms against gadhafi. they have -- as the reporter in libya indicated, being able to do some attacks on western
for our failure in afghanistan and iraq. we leftiraq, and it is now disintegrating and al qaeda is coming back and we did not leave a residual force which we should have. and in afghanistan he overruled the military advisers on several occasions including 30,000 instead of 40,000 for the surge accelerating the withdrawal dates and now we have this situation where the taliban and the enemies know that we are leaving. the whole premise was to train afghans in order to turn over these responsibilities to them and leave. now, how can we train and work with these people if so many of them are killing americans that we cannot train and operate with them. so that policy has been an abject failure. >> we will talk with senator mccain more about political issues ip colluding president obama's 47% statement. joining us now is fran townsend a cnn contributor who is a former cis security council advisory member. as i said, you met with ambassador steven, and he told another source that he was on the al qaeda hit list and there were security concern s >> you know we had a long . conversation especiall
and politics is like throwing gas on a fire, and nowhere is that truer right now than in iraq. the iraqi vice president has been sentenced to death on charges of running death squads. this is the current one, not sadd saddam's, the current one. now, he in turn is accusing the prime minister, the current one, al maliki of carrying out a political vendetta. the vice president is a prominent sunni muslim. al maliki is a shiite. i think you get the picture here. that vp is in exile in turkey. today he declared his innocence. >> i totally reject and will never recognize the unjust, the politically motivated verdict, which was expected from the outset of the trial. >> coinciding with the verdict, a wave of bombings. look at pictures. they are becoming familiar elsewhere. they were up familiar at one time. this time more than 90 people wounded -- 90 people killed and 300 wounded aacrocross the coun. sunni insurgents belonging to al qaeda in iraq claiming responsibility. you might sum this up in one word. mess. ivan watson is monitoring the developments from istanbul. last i checked the americans spe
to the fruit vendor in tunisia who set himself on fire to the decision by george w. bush to attack iraq in the wake of 9/11. go in, overthrow a dictator, turn the country over to the people and presto. well, violence continues in iraq and people die there everyday. egypt's now in the hands of the muslim brotherhood. mubarak's gone. they had elections there. and yesterday violent mobs assaulted the u.s. embassy compound. in libya moammar gadhafi's gone. the u.s. ambassador and three other people are dead because some terrorists in that country didn't like a movie critical of islam. syria's become a slaughter house murdering the civilian population at will. iran continues the march toward nuclear weapons. i don't want to even think what might happen if they get them. and al qaeda is busy reconstitutes itself in pakistan and half a dozen other countries. the song writer who wrote the phrase, wishing won't make it so, spot-on. and anybody who thinks the middle east is suddenly going to transform itself into a peaceful civilization where majority rules, they just haven't been reading the his
, and then we left and went to iraq. so president obama had to put a plan in place and a timetable to get it done. so it may not be as fast as we would all like, but the fact is, the cost of this war, in terms of our human treasure, the most important part, our young people, the casualties to their lives and to their physical well-being and their mental -- it's all physical, mental or not. so, yeah, i do think that this is taking to us a place where we should really understand that war, as a resolution of conflict, is an obsolete idea. and we should take the debate to a bigger place, a bigger place. i'll never get over the fact that president bush took us into war on a false premise, that he knew was false, that his administration knew was false, for a different agenda, and look how long we stayed in iraq. >> whether or not it ends up becoming an issue in the presidential race, is this a matter for congress to decide, in terms of when we leave, before the election or after the election, or is it the president's call? >> well, it's a combination. because when we won in '06, one of the big
continue in cairo. >> demonstrations across the region from iran and iraq to gaza, to yemen, to libya and morocco. >> and violence is putting u.s. embassies across the middle east on high alert. >> libyan officials state four arrests have been made in the attack on the u.s. consulate. >> ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack. >> they were good and brave men. >> the federal reserve, planning to buy up mortgage debt to get the economy rolling. it will spend $40 billion a month on bonds until home buying is affordable again. >> investors certainly like what they heard. the dow rose yesterday, finishing up 206 points. >> what bernanke is doing is saying what the president is doing is wrong. president saying the economy is coming back. bernanke is saying, no, it's not. i've got to print more money. >> do you think there's a chance you could lose this election? >> oh, absolutely. >> duke and duchess of cambridge seem to be angry after a french magazine publish nude photos of kate. >>> bear has a dramatic evening, climbing trees and taking a dip in a sw

bush, in these weeks and months when she was planning action against iraq, he was also talking about how great a religion islam is. he was talking about how we as americans look after muslim ameri americans, we protect them from hatred and tell them vile things about. -- -- also respect islam as an apologize. that's what the -- after 911. you. >> this is best evidence for why the blustering comments of a desperate politician are actually not in the best interests of this nation when it comes to matters overseas. >> that's obviously true. as richard said, george w. bush understood and mitt romney makes george w. bush look like some sort of giant of states manship and blodiplomacy, which is not easy thing to do. the administration response should have been some sort of blustery defense of this vile video produced specifically to inflame the sentiments of the muslim world. and just imagine what would have happened had that been an initial reaction by the u.s. administration saying, yeah, boy, we think this is great. you wouldn't see what you're seeing today, you would see something much
. and it is beyond cairo tonight. anti-u.s. demonstrators clashed in front of u.s. embassies, in israel, sudan, iraq, iran and among muslims in kashmir. there's a call in iran for nationwide rallies tomorrow. it appears to be a backlash at least in part from a low budget anti-islamic film which was made in the united states, first posted on youtube in july and recently publicized in the middle east. here's what we're also learning tonight. federal officials say the filmmaker's name is nakoula basseley nakoula. that name is very important and much more and why it matters so much later. but the group loosely affiliated with al qaeda in libya that has been accused of playing a role in tuesday's deadly attack on the american consulate in benghazi has just issued a statement denying responsibility. it's an important thing to say given that they have quickly claimed responsibility for other attacks, including on american interests and on the red cross. libyan prime minister tells cnn at least one person has been arrested in conjunction with the killings of the american ambassador chris steven's and three
to india. we saw protests, i mean, this is incredible to see. tunis tunisia, iraq, iran, israel and protests also spread to a country not on the map. indones indonesia. some of the protests were peaceful like in vorden, where they burned the american flag, but did not resort to violence, but people were killed elsewhere. this is the live scene in cairo tonight. they've tried to get them to go away from the u.s. embassy. as you can see right here, this is a group of people near the u.s. embassy. still there tonight as they continue to be there day in and day out as the rage continues to spread. in libya, the remains of four americans kill during the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi returned to the andrews air force base this afternoon. president obama was there and he vowed to bring justice to the men who killed them. >> even as voices of suspicious and mistrust that seek to devid countries and cultures, the united states of america will never retreat from the world. >> four people have been arrested in libya what were on the scene of the attack, but the government says t
for the u.s.-led government in iraq under president bush. now a romney adviser who thinks obama's middle east policy is a disaster. now how that's for irony? a man who defended the war in iraq is slamming president obama on foreign policy. and here comes the big one. donald rumsfeld, the man who helped leaders into two disastrous wars is weighing in. >> you don't see these kinds of things happening unless the people engaging in them are pretty darn sure that there's no penalty for it. >> as bill clinton would say, this takes brass. there were 12 -- 12 attacks on u.s. diplomatic fa till teas under george bush. eight while rumsfeld was serving. how is that for hypocrisy? and what's worst, these are the folks that romney is aligning himself with. they are the people coming to his defense and guiding his policies. do we really want to go back to shoot and aim later? joining me now is michael tomaski, special kor spoon dend for newsweek and the daily beast. he's writing today about mitt romney's total neocon melt down. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> my pleasure, al. >> you talk ext

. almost 80 million people. it's had a tremendous amount of influence in lebanon, afghanistan and iraq and in some cases, our interests are actually mutual with the united states and iran, so i think it is an important country without -- i think they've had a problem for many, many years with the west. particularly with the united states. where they believe, whether it's true or not, but they believe that the u.s. is out to get them. out to destroy the regime and overthrow the regime. even this recent delisting of the opposition group that was in iraq, claim is another example of the u.s. only interested in changing the regime. we have many, many issues between the u.s. and iran over the 30 years, the nuclear age has gotten to the point now where we have harsh, harsh sanctions hurting the people, the economy, everyone. probably not the regime so much. >> not as tough as they should, at least fm our reporting. if you were really trying to shut things down. >> well, they're not that lenient. i think people find a way to get around. >> leaky. >> sorry. but i think that right now, with th
know where to start. iraq was obviously a tragic detour. afghanistan now appears to be a tragic, endless war. what have we gotten? let's start by talking about what have we gotten right? what have these two administrations who seemed to be polar opposites but now seem to be tied together in their approach. what have they gotten right? >> it actually turns out we've gotten a lot right. you mentioned the fact there hasn't been a real follow-on to 9/11. and it's in part good fortune, in part good work, but also the terrorists lost their base in afghanistan after 9/11. bin laden has been killed. i thought what we saw in the arab world with all of the upheavals that no one was coming out there chanting al qaeda slogans. these guys know how to destroy, but they don't know how to create. they don't know how to inspire. i think in some ways we've learned as bad as 9/11 was, it wasn't a turning point because these guys don't represent an alternative. >> they did not start a revolution with 9/11. and in fact, they've lost the battle for the hearts and the minds of the arab world. >> there
